Wilson explained, "You've heard of Art Therapy and Music Therapy. Now, there is Laughter Therapy. We are delighted to bring this innovative educational opportunity to our area again. The program will show professionals and volunteers how hearty laughter and healthy living go hand in hand with a balanced life."
